Gift Hero: Puzzle of Your Choice Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed with 269 comments. Thank you to all who entered. Congratulations to the lucky winner ~ Kristy!

Hey there readers, this is a great site! Gift Hero makes finding gifts easy. With their easy to navigate website, you can shop by age and gender while quickly find what you're looking for. Save your time for what really matters most.

Here is more about this helpful company from their website:

As the mothers of 3 young children, we’ve attended more birthday parties than we can count. We’ve spent too much time staring at the overwhelming, yet unsatisfying selection of toys in our local stores and at big online retailers trying to find that perfect gift…a gift we felt good about giving and the birthday child (and her mom) would love. We felt there had to be a better, easier, more convenient way.

We started GIFT HERO to change the way parents buy gifts for birthday parties. We’ve found what we hope are the best toys for the age and gender of the child and the amount you want to spend. We (and our kids and their friends) have tested all of the toys we sell -- and we don’t offer anything we wouldn’t be thrilled for our own children to receive. We’ve created the Gift Finder to help you quickly find your gift. And, we’ve designed a fun and easy gift bag to “wrap” your gift and bring it to the party.

We also feel very strongly about giving back and creating opportunities to teach children the value and importance of charity. We want our children to realize how lucky they are and we also want every child to feel as fortunate as ours do. So, part of GIFT HERO is an opportunity to give back. We will work with children’s charities to provide gifts to children whose families can’t afford them.



Gift Hero has a wonderful selection of puzzles for ages 3 and up. They also have a terrific assortment of toys for all ages.

We received their Fairy Tales 100-Piece Puzzle and Dragonology 100-Piece Puzzle. What's great about these? They come in their very own tin box. This keeps all the pieces secure. My kids adore puzzles and carry them around often. Cardboard boxes tend to get bent, rip and just fall apart. I love the idea of a sturdy box that not only looks great, but is functional.

These are recommended for ages 6 and up. My daughter is 5 and can complete this with the help of mom or dad. For my 7 year old son, it is challenging enough to keep him stimulated, yet easy enough to complete all by himself. They're excellent puzzles and for $14 each, I would definitely purchase more.



Gift Hero would like to offer one lucky reader the puzzle of your choice! Click here to see their selection!
